What distinguishes Peggle at Jackpot Joy from other fruit machine games is the concept of unlocking features. The player unlocks these “master” features by realizing certain events. The concept is similar to the achievement systems used on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam.
The first spin, the player automatically achieves the “Peggle Apprentice” event. Other events include “Winning Streak Master,” which happens when a player wins on five consecutive spins. Another event is “Free Spins Veteran,” which triggers when the payer hits a bonus round for the twentieth time.

The masters themselves are avatars that the player can use during the bonus rounds. Think of them like masks. A player might choose to use the Jimmy Lightning mask, which multiplies all line wins by 2-5. The top master is Master Hu, which refunds the spin on any losing free spin. Master Hu is incredibly lucrative indeed.
In order to initiate a bonus round, the player must hit three scatter symbols on reels 1, 2 or 3. At that point, the player can choose any master that they’ve unlocked thus far, and then they enter the bonus round. Peggle is a great deal of fun, and it sticks with you because of how different it is from other fruit machine games.
